Broker's Comments

She is deceptively spacious with a very clever internal layout which is light and airy.

In production until 2007/8, the Etap 26i is designed by Mortain & Mavrikios, in conjunction with Etap's in-house design team. The Etap 26i is RCD Category B for four persons, or C for 6.

For a workable reduction of the draught neither a wing keel or a bulb keel were sufficient. The solution was found in placing two shorter keels
behind one another, linked by a wing-bulb profile : the ETAP tandem keel

Test by French magazine "Voiles & Voiliers" and Yachting Monthly in 2015 - ...."the fact that Etap does indeed make unsinkable boats"
"Yacht". Itinerary: Calais - Dover - Calais in a single day with all through-hull fittings open letting in 2000 litres of water.

Built in features:
UNSINKABLE You will never need to abandon ship thanks to the unsinkability guarantee. You know that your ETAP boat will stay afloat.
ETAP Yachting uses a double mould construction in which a 2-component polyurethane foam is injected. This foam is called "closed celled" because it is not porous and can hardly absorb
any water. It gives sufficient buoyancy to the yacht in case of a leak to keep it afloat under all circumstances.
INSULATION There is a highly efficient thermal and acoustic insulation thanks to the double-mould construction method.
NO CONDENSATION Your ETAP is condensation-free thanks to the ship-in-ship construction, giving your crew andequipment a much more pleasant environment than other boats.
OPTIMAL STIFFNESS An ETAP has a more rigid, dimensionally stable structure thanks to the double-skinned deck and hull.
